Welcome to my humble site....
Hajimemashite minna san....welcome to my site on my fave Japanese Pop Culture likes such as dramas, movies, magazine scans, promo events etc. Mainly concentrate on my faves...Keyakizaka46... Yuko Oshima... Nogizaka46!.... C-ute.... Lee Yeon-Hee!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!
Also these days(mid-2017) have many posts for Korean actresses, dramas and films that are worth checking out as over the years have become a much bigger fan of Korean dramas versus the ones from Japan.
Few tidbits.... have no idea why the background color constantly changes, think Blogger keeps doing it.
New item on the right is the 'Featured Post of the Day', will be putting some fabulous oldie posts which some of you may have missed the first time around, all will be at least one year old.

Nogizaka46: A little of this and that for 2017 #30....
Those pics are from a mini concert that took place a few days ago, I really like those uniforms and hopefully we'll be seeing them in their upcoming concerts. Nogi's Summer tour resumes on August 11th and think they have a total of eight concerts in August. That first performance will be taking place two days after the group's 18th single. Very curious how it'll do sales wise, no doubt it'll be a huge seller though it seems there isn't as much anticipation like there's been for previous singles.
Not a lot of one thing but quite a bit of many recent activities, this is one of the bigger Nogi posts I've had in a while. Leading off is Chiharu who is rising on my fave members list, kind of hard not liking her and she truly is one smart woman. Pics here are from a new interview for Modelpress as she'll be guesting on tomorrow's "Discovery of the World's Mysteries" show which airs on TBS. She traveled to Taiwan which isn't mysterious but the place she investigated was which was a lake. Chiharu has been fascinated by Lake Uyuni in Bolivia and the one she's going to is like that. If you recall in one 'Bingo!' episode there was a skit of her traveling to Bolivia to visit it.
Previous years used to have many posts devoted to group cards but that hasn't been the case this year. But what I'll do like those other years is to assemble all of the member's cards into one individual post for that gal. Here are some missed ones from July for Erika, Nanase and Miona.
Miona finished sixth last year on my 'Top Ten Fave Nogi Member' list, wouldn't doubt if she ends up in the top four this year or if she does have a PB this year perhaps higher. Have two mag spreads for today with her having the cover and a superb set of pics from the August 16th Weekly Shonen.
Not Nanase's biggest spread but have to say don't think she's ever looked as attractive, she's turned into a real beauty and these are from the August issue of Highway Walker.
Oooops, there is one more spread and it features Sayuri from the September edition of CanCam.
Plenty of blog pics and with so many Senbatsus getting demoted the Undergirls have turned into a group that could outperform anyone. First off is Yuuri who turned 24 a week ago, wanted to do a post for her but sadly there just weren't enough recent new pics. Following her is Miria and you can usually depend on her for new blog pics.
For so long Ayane was the shyest of members and it was so bad it was difficult watching her on their variety shows. She's had a radio show for a while which has really helped her. The third pic down is from an event a few weeks ago and had forgotten all about it until tonight, will have more info in Nogi's next post. Rounding off the pics are ones from Karin, she may not look it but she turned 24 in May and unfortunately has always been an UG.
Think these 'My First Baito' CM's should be ending soon, fourteen members so far have done one. Have missed a few of them along the way so trying to get to everyone, hard to believe that the one from Kazumi hadn't been posted yet.
